This was taken up in Yorkshire on a bit of a weekend break. Out the back of the cottage were a row of wind turbines, which surprisingly make very little noise whatsoever, even when a dozen of them are all running. They're mesmerising to watch if you've never seen them before. You might not be able to sense the scale from the shot, but they are huge. A human would look be a couple of millimetres high if he were standing next to one in this scene. I took another with a sixth turbine in shot, which you can see here.

Taken with the Hoya R72 infrared filter.
